Marine infrastructure and transport both old and new has to survive the harsh environment they operate in. There is little understanding of degradation processes when mechanical wear and corrosion combine which results in material/coating section and life predictions of key components or entire asserts are inaccurate or under predict the damage actually seen in service.
